Osaka in a nutshell.

Hello! I just came back from Osaka, and we had a blast! :D Though I did come back 3 shades darker FML. It's quite ironic, 'cause I was careful to not get tanned from our minimoon trip in Bali recently, but alas, summer in Osaka got the better of me. T_T

Anyway, posting a few photos from our trip first! Consider it a teaser slash overview. :D

An iconic sight in Dotonburi, Osaka. If you don't believe, just refer back to the Hello Kitty photo above. :P

Hopping on and off trains to get to Kyoto and Kobe from Osaka-- it's really easy!

A summer-worthy lunch-- cold soba with beancurd skin on ice, served with cold mochi. :D

On the flipside, summer is really beautiful with all the lush greenery!

Can't wait to blog properly about our trip, we took so many beautiful photos! I love going to Japan 'cause it's always filled with pleasant experiences and memories, and this trip was no different. :)

A lazy girl's guide to an interesting outfit.

These 2 weeks will be pretty hectic in terms of traveling! Just came back from Bali like 2 days ago, and I am flying off to Osaka tomorrow. :O And upon touching down in KL from Osaka, I will literally hop onto the next flight to Langkawi for a friend's wedding! Am quite nervous about this, 'cause if our return flight from Osaka is delayed, I will miss my flight to Langkawi. T_T

Anyway, on to happier things!

My lunch partner for the day. :D

This was a momentous occasion, 'cause since Teeny have started working, we have been talking about having lunch together for AGES. Even when her office was really near where I worked, our lunch session never materialized!! Only after she started a new job at a much further job, did we do lunch together for the first time. -_-

One of the better carbonaras in town, IMHO. This was in Three Little Pigs (BV1), and I love that it comes with a wobbly poached egg!

BUT, admittedly the pasta wasn't as nice as the first time that I ate it . Sigh, why can't Malaysian restaurants maintain their food standards?

Outfit details:

Wore a very basic outfit, and let my fun skirt be the focal point. :D

If you don't know me by now, I love investing in interesting bottoms, 'cause there are countless ways to mix and match, and still end up with an interesting outfit! For example, you can match it with a white camisole like I did here, a gray tee, a cropped top, a white buttoned-up.... All the outfits will be cute! So there you go, a lazy girl's guide to interesting outfits-- get a fun bottom. :P

Sorry for the short hiatus! We were away for our mini honeymoon in Bali. :)


I fondly refer to our mini honeymoon as mini-moon...

Him: Who coined the term "mini-moon?"

Me: Hmm.. I am not sure. But it's quite a common word la!

Him: Wah.. Luckily we didn't go on a cruise for our honeymoon!

Me: ???

Him: If not we will have to call it "Sailor-moon".

Me: -_-||
